World History: Journeys from Past to Present

Using a thematic approach supported by a variety of evidence and multidisciplinary interpretations, World History: Journeys from Past to Present provides a dynamic framework for the study of the vast reaches of our common past. Distinguished by truly global coverage, this new survey helps us to discover the connections between past and present from earliest prehistory to the present age of globalization. Thematic chapters explore mobility and the interrelationship of peoples; their connections with the environment; the communities they form; the patterns of dominance and submission involved in the ways they organize themselves politically, economically, and socially; and the ways in which they construct and express cultures through ideas, religion, art and architecture. World History has many student-friendly features, including:

  • primary source material to support the thematic argument
  • over 90 images and maps to amplify the text
  • guided links to online resources, including the multimedia website Bridging World History

World History: Journeys from Past to Present will be an invaluable resource for students in college and university world history or world civilization courses and for anyone interested in a comprehensive framework for grasping world history.
